(WTNH) — Comedian Bill Cosby has broken his silence on the sexual assault allegations against him.  On Friday he spoke with a reporter for the New York Post.  While Cosby didn’t specifically talk about the allegations against him, he did offer his opinion on how the Black Media should cover the story.

Cosby said: “I only expect the Black Media to uphold the standards of excellence in journalism and when you do that you have to go in with a neutral mind.”

The 77-year-old also praised his wife Camille for being so strong through all of the allegations.

More than 20 women have come forward claiming Cosby drugged them and then sexually assaulted them. His attorney says the stories aren’t true.
